My personal favorite as much for the venue as for the show:

I had almost as good a time getting tickets for this one as I did going to the show. There were lots of people hanging out and camping in front of the Fox theater. The fancy hotel across the street was not open for business at the time, though it is an upscale destination now. Lots of folks hanging out around the entrance to that place sharing a good vibe. I think I'm too old to sit on marble for that long without something cramping up now...

Frosts' were some of my favorites from 85
4-27-85 the jam in dancin is loveley
4-28-85 beautiful second set
the Berkeley shows were way overrated

6-28-85.... If u listen to the supersticous/bottom and don't feel the magic you might want to vomit or comit suicide, or become republican. and if u were there
and didn't like it, it sounds like personal problems. get some sunshine, breathe, go play with a puppy, and turn that frown upside down.
85 was billed as the aniversary year, the sound evolved yet again. Brent played a plucking style, phil started singing again, Jerry seemed to have newfound inspiration in his solos and was playin extremely fast see eyes 6-27-85. The lighting crew were releasing some if the finest sbd's
which seemed to hit the scene like gangbusters.

Used to listen to 85 quite a bit and try to revisit all the years in my rotation.
